Notes

--This set (minus NFA) has often circulated as the 6-24-70 early show, or the 6-25-70 late show. This is now strongly believed to be from the July Fillmore East run, and 7-10 is the most likely date. A recently circulating excerpt from Weinberg's reels supplies the NFA. This version matches no other from the year, and is clearly stated to be the encore from the Fillmore East. It is possible that it could be from 7-9.

Subject: Quite good
Very listenable to those of us that appreciate a decent audience source, and for 1970, enough said. This show and recording deserve no less than 4 stars. I'm giving 5 to up the average.

Very cloudy, blurry tape
Reviewer: Yades - favoritefavoritefavorite - July 10, 2014
Subject: Poor recording of a great show
1970 is one of my favorite years, and this show is no exception. Very interesting set list and transitions. The recording is fairly poor but listenable once your ears adjust.

Subject: Nothing wrong with this show
Full disclosure - 1970 is probably my FAVORITE year for the Dead. Unfortunately, Bear was in jail, and very few soundboards were recorded. I love the AUDs that survive from this year. Is this show as good a recording as a mid-80s show? No, of course not. Is it awesome? Oh, yeah.

Subject: This show smokes
Yes there is some clapping close to the mic but the music comes through quite well, and there is low end. This is a band at the top of its game on this run and all of these mid-July Fillmore East recordings should be given a fair chance.
Reviewer: enardi - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - May 6, 2010
Subject: lovelight
the author of the dead book skeleton key claims his first show was 1970-07-10 and the closer song was lovelight meaning either its missing or this show is from 1970-07-09 (very possible indicated by notes)
Reviewer: bscalera - favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - August 12, 2009
Subject: typical sound for 1970
and raw, bordering on sloppy, playing make for a thoroughly delightful trip down memory lane for east coast heads. I'm thankful that guys like Marty had the foresight to tape so that we can bitch about how much better we wish this sounded!!! Regardless of which night on the tour this was, it is representative of the sound of the boys at the time - rough, raw, powerful, filled with missteps and wondrous moments. Thanks to all responsible for the site and the music. Peace

...of east coast hippies clapping themselves silly while a band plays off in the distance.

Blah.

Subject: Great set; poor sound quality
I don't know if the Not Fade Away belongs or not, but I am still inclined to believe that this is the early show from Port Chester 6-24-70.
My first copy of this years ago was on casette labeled 6-25-70.
Then, later, Dead Base labeled it as the early show from 6-24-70.
I don't know if there were two sets on 6-25 or two successive nights, but I *hear* this set as kindred to the established and accepted Port Chester 6-24-70 'late' show.
The Attics are *very* similar-- and the playing at both sets is, well, outstanding.
And one more piece of circumstantial 'evidence': shows at Port Chester in 1970 (Nov.) were INTENSE.

Highlights: Awesome Cold Rain and Snow; Alligator->Other One is INCENDIARY. Very short... but I can visualize the top of the theater being blown off...

And, the Attics. One of my very favorite Dead lullabys, and this the best performance of it I have ever heard.

The Not Fade Away is also outstanding. One of their better jams during this period. I also suspect it is from another show.

WIsh boards were available...

A pretty obvious one drops in a few minutes into NFA and fits the tempo well.
Reviewer: psymon - favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - December 2, 2005
Subject: Fun show
Plenty of that 1970 enthusiasm and variety and some cool segues. The sound quality is not bad at all and gives you the feeling of being there.
Reviewer: Havergill Milk - favoritefavoritefavorite - March 3, 2005
Subject: NFA
One of the best NFAs I've ever heard. sound quality not great, but not bad either. Other highlights exist as well.

First off, I didn't burn this onto a CD. But I have to say that this is a fascinating artifact!

I have listened to a lot of it, and it gives you the feeling of being crowded into a hallway in the back of this venue. One can hear the crowd reacting gleefully and the intro to Cosmic Charlie is delightfully raunchy. For someone who was born shortly after this show, its interesting to get this taste of a famous Dead venue.

I will continue to listen to this show occasionally, but I will not save or burn it as the quality of the recording just doesn't warrant it. Its worth a listen.
